Responsibility for ensuring that necessary funding is in place to meet the costs of a TIWB Programme resides with the Host Administration. These costs should be considered in respect to the anticipated impact of the audit assistance programme. By drawing on its network of Donor Partners, the TIWB Secretariat is able to assist Host Administrations connect with potential Donor Partners and Partner Administrations who may have the capacity to fund all or part of the costs of the TIWB Programme.
In most cases, Host Administrations contribute to funding the costs of the TIWB Programme and should be viewed as a means of engaging ongoing and high-level commitment to the TIWB Programme's objectives by the Host Administration.
Several TIWB Programmes are currently underway in various countries and jurisdictions to support audit activities. Experience from a pilot phase proves that TIWB-style audit assistance can result in improved quality and consistency of tax audits; sustained improvements in tax audit skills; and higher levels of voluntary compliance by taxpayers. South-South deployments are also a growing element of TIWB Programmes.
The following countries have made formal requests for assistance to the Tax Inspectors Without Borders (TIWB) Secretariat. We are currently seeking qualified experts to be deployed as part of the TIWB Programmes below.
